Why Is Soy Wax Better?

The Texas Rose  soy candles are made from 100% all-natural soy wax. The soy wax used to make these candles is harvested from soy beans. Which supports USA farmers. The Texas Rose  soy candles are designed to burn completely and cleanly with a minimal amount of soot.

Soy candles afford a longer-burning, higher-quality candle experience. Soy wax holds and disperses fragrance evenly throughout the burn of the candle. Because of the soy wax and the way in which each of our candles are made, they burn significantly longer than the average candle on the market. The Texas Rose candles also burn completely leaving little or no wax on the side of the candle offering you a greater value with every candle you purchase.

Not all candles are made the same. Unfortunately the majority of candles on the market are made from paraffin, a petroleum-based wax. So when people burn the average candles off the shelf, they are really burning a petroleum by-product - not very appealing!

Soy candles burn cleaner. No one wants to breathe in petroleum by-products, much less for something that is intended for pleasure like a candle. In side-by-side comparisons with The Texas Rose  candles and paraffin candles, there is a noticeable difference in how our soy candles create considerably less soot. You can breathe easily and safely enjoy burning our candles that are made with soy wax.

Paraffin, on the other hand, is a by-product of oil refining. It is a nonrenewable resource, so once we are out of oil, we will no longer be able to produce paraffin. Additionally, paraffin is not easily biodegradable.

Why isn't every candle on the market made from soy wax? Soy wax is more expensive than paraffin.  However, you do have options. The Texas Rose is proud to offer a clean burning, environmentally responsible, high-quality line of candles.

Place candle on a heat resistant surface away from anything that could be damaged by heat or catch fire.

Never leave a burning candle unattended.

Keep candles out of reach of children, pets and away from drafts.

Keep soybean oil pool free of match stubs, clippings and other flammable material.


DO NOT trim the wick before first light.

EACH TIME the candle is burned, allow the candle to burn long enough for entire surface to liquefy and the melted soybean oil reaches the edge of the jar,

(At this time you may want to continue to burn the candle or extinguish it).

Keep wick centered when burning.

When extinguishing the flame, snuff it out by laying the lid on top of jar. This prevents the "ball" on top of the wick from being blown into the hot liquid, and keeps the white smoke in the jar. This will not turn the jar black.  Before each burning (excluding the first one.) trim the wick back to 1/4" and discard the clipping before lighting.
